My students walk into class every day with excitement, ready to learn, and full of wonder about what the day has in store. I tell them, "If something is hard or you can't do it yet, it's because you haven't learned how. Don't give up!" I want them to know I believe in them and they can do anything.
I teach at a Title I school, in Northern California, where many of our amazing students come from bilingual households and over 40 percent receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch.
They are thrilled to be in school. because they want to learn, and I am so proud to be their teacher!
We are requesting 3 Blue-Bots and a USB charger so we can continue to learn more coding skills. We participated in the Hour of Code in December and have been even more excited about coding ever since. My students had a blast learning to code with Osmo and borrowed Bee-bots. Despite my students various levels of learning, I was amazed by how well my students picked up Coding Jam and programming the Bee-Bots. It’s time we got some of our own!
Depending on the needs of each student, these Blue-Bots will help my students practice coding while strengthening all different types of skills.
With the help of learning mazes, some students will be working on letter/number recognition while others will be spelling more challenging words or creating math sentences. My students will be able to use these bots no matter where their needs fall! The Blue-Bots will help with differentiation for my students. Please help me give them more challenging opportunities with these Blue-Bot robots.
